Darkness unfolds when one man's touch
Caresses the body you cherish so much

You close your eyes, you close your mind
Your childhood years are left behind

Oh Mommy please help me your mind shouts the words
Mommy won't listen your fears are unheard

Your innocence gone your soul slowly dying
There's nothing left but a young child crying

Nothing you can do no one you can tell
For the darkness has closed in and left you in hell

This is beautiful <3
2 of my sisters went through this crap, as well as me.
Both had half brothers that decided it was ok.
One is in prison, the other walks free - too scared to break her already broken family. I just wish she would stand up to him, I wish she could have the strength the we had when we came clean.
